I am trying to translate Duckman game.

I did a comtype_scan2.bat and I have 2 files with texts: 206.dmp (COMP_DICT, 92Mb) and 493.dmp (COMP_PCLZFG, 570Mb)

Now I can see all the texts.

But, I don't know how I can do the reverse. I need the original file (28Mb).

Can you help me wih a QuickBMS script, please?

The file is: https://www.dropbox.com/s/b2zx28gv3395m ... N.GAM?dl=0

Thanks!

Honestly I don't know if exist a (re)compression implementation of the algorithm because dict was available on the (apparently no longer existent) freearc.org website as a "research" while pclzfg doesn't have any recompressor in its source code.
I leave here the 2 links available in the source code of quickbms:
http://freearc.org/download/research/dict.zip
http://www.embedded-os.de/en/pclzfg.shtml

I'm really surprised there is a game using this (these) algorithms anyway I didn't investigate and simply answered to the question.

I have more compression for the file: CKRLE, LZ77WII_RAW30, COMPRLIB_RLE1

I have the same problem.

You have done a huge mess with this topic. It was in the wrong section and tried to use comtype.
NEVER EVER USE THE COMTYPE SCANNER: you are wasting your time and, unfortunately, mine too.

I have moved the topic in the correct section and made a script for the format:
http://aluigi.org/bms/duckman.bms

The script automatically handles the dialog files having type 15 so will directly get the txt files in the extracted folder "15" without any additional operation.
